User Review  - Isabelle - Goodreads

This is another good book if you wanted to have an easy read. It never got boring and is interesting. All the characters have their own personality and the writer's words were chosen carefully. I recommend this book to girls if they feel like reading a book in 20 minutes. Read full review

About the author (1986)

Ann M. Martin, 1955 - Ann Mathews Martin was born on August 12, 1955 in Princeton, New Jersey. She graduated from Smith College and worked as a teacher, was an editor of children's books for both Bantam and Scholastic, and then became a full time writer. Martin is the author of the well-known Baby-sitters Club books. She has also written other children's books, which include the title "Ten Kids, No Pets." She bases her characters, in part, on individuals in her own life; and the shy babysitter Mary Anne, is partially based on herself. She created a new series for middle grade readers called California Diaries, which follows Dawn of The Baby-sitters Club, after she moves to California.
